It turns out that the error check for duplicate PKs is only invoked if
you tell this code that it's being invoked by ALTER TABLE, and my
original patch wasn't.  I changed it and now everything seems to behave
as expected.

I added a test case pretty much like yours, which now works correctly.
I also added another one where the bogus PK is two levels down rather
than one.  This is because I had originally developed a different fix --
which fixed the problem for your test case, until I realized that since
this code is recursive, we could cause trouble at a distance.

Thanks for reporting the problem
